Timing is everything.

Time…

Don’t you think?

In so many, many ways…

Think back to some of the major things that had happened in your life. For instance, imagine if you didn’t go to that coffee shop at that specific time so many years ago, you might never have met the love of your life. Or you wouldn’t have landed the job you’ve got now.

If I didn’t go to the shops at the time I did on the 30th May 2020, and if I crossed the road five seconds earlier or later, I would never have been hit by a truck, and landed up in hospital. (True story…)

When you cook and bake, timing is ever so important. If you leave the fish in the pan for 2 minutes too long, it is dry and horrible. If you forget to set the timer and you don’t take the cake out of the oven in time, it is ruined.

Accidents could have been avoided, lives would have been different, if the timing was different.

If you start the game of ‘IF’, it is amazing, mind boggling, scary. I don’t often think about things that way, but once I start, I keep going. I then realize how much of my life could’ve been different give or take a few minutes or hours here or there. It can also be a few years. I’ve heard people say that they’ve met the love of their life, but the timing wasn’t right.

I do, however, strongly believe in the fact that one’s life is pretty much planned for you even before you are born, otherwise, why else would things happen exactly the way they do? And I know a LOT of you will argue with me about that, and that is fine, we are all entitled to our own beliefs. Even if you differ, just give a few minutes of thought to the timing in your life, how certain things worked out, or didn’t, because of timing.

You know how we use the words ‘he was lucky – he was just at the right place, at the right time’? Mmmmm … but was it just luck?

Luck, serendipity, coincidence, preordination, call it what you want to, nobody can deny that timing is a huge part of life and love.

Until next time, may your timing be just right! đŸ˜‰

PS. Apparently timing is also important in regards to when you do a new post – so here’s hoping I’ve at last got the timing right!!! đŸ˜€

About zelmare

Hallo to you from the southern most part of the African continent - South Africa!! To put my life in a nutshell : I raised 3 absolutely fabulous kids (I'm sure you will hear a lot about them, since I am a very proud mama), I became a doting grandmother two years ago and recently bought a house in the Western Cape, and in doing so, realized a dream I've had for many, many years. I love traveling, which I don't do often enough. I love living a simple life - cooking, gardening, knitting and of course, blogging. There is still a lot I want to do and see in my lifetime, but time will tell how much of that I can actually accomplish. I am looking forward to meeting a lot of lovely new friends and interesting people here on WordPress! :)
